    with the help of andrew (thank you again) it appears i am learning and catching on. i have set up a child theme and when i have my child theme activated and i go to editor it does not have all of the many templates on the right hand side of the screen as it does when i have the parent theme activated and i go to editor, is this normal?

    This is normal.

    If you need a file to appear, with the exception of functions.php and style.css, you go to the parent theme, copy that file and paste it into your Child Theme directory.

    Then the file (within your Child Theme) is ready to work on.

    ok perfect. if i already made changes to my parent theme "footer.php" prior to learning about the child theme how do i restore the original information in the parent "footer.php" file?

    You can find the code of the Spun theme from this repository: http://themes.svn.wordpress.org/spun/

    Alternatively download the theme again and take the footer.php file out.
